The ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ hitmaker is aware that it will take a long, long time for public to use the correct pronoun when referring to the non-binary people.
Sam Smith has admitted they don’t expect fans to ever get their gender pronouns right.
Last year 2019, the 27-year-old singer came out as non-binary, telling fans, “I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out…”
However, in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Sam revealed that they know they’ll be misgendered for a long time.
“What’s hard is people changing their vocabulary; that’s very, very difficult,” Sam shared. “It takes time. Everyone messes up. I’m going to be misgendered to the day I die.”
They added, “This is going to take a long, long time for people to not use gender in their vocabulary.”
Sam is gearing up to release their new album, “To Die For“, on May 1, 2020, after debuting its title track on Friday, February 14, 2020.
